    Well here we go again! Is there anything these guys won't try to own?

    Code:

    If it's hot, it's on their radar and it seems no other company can keep up! :confused:

    i am not surprised...!

    only they are the ones that can come up with ways to make money with that thing without destroying it completely!

    i think twitter has not made even a single penny yet!

    A 'live' search engine. Sounds interesting.

    It would be easy for Twitter to make dosh without spoiling it.

    i think twitter has had the plan to sell it to google all the time, that is prob why they turned down the 40 million offer from Facebook not so long ago.

    and i don't think there new serch feature was added by accident i belive it was to put presure on Google.

    Google is a massive money maker using other peoples content, any big trafficed sites that use the same system they want to own, incase them said sites say hold on where getting millions of surfers why not add a internet search to this place.

    youtube could have made a dint in the google traffic if they had decided to do that and Twitter could make a dent in them if they also do that.

    its just google not taking any chances IMO.

    they don't really want the company but are just stopping potential future compitition.
